Gold Vibes are the Birmingham-based direct sales and marketing firm that are considered experts within their field. The business has recently been investigating support for emerging entrepreneurs within their city which has for the fifth year in a row been named the top city for entrepreneurs outside of London.
Over the course of 2017, there were over 12,000 new businesses established in Birmingham – that was a staggering 4,000 more than Manchester that came in third place. Gold Vibes argues that the accelerated start-up environment within Birmingham can be placed down to the emerging scene that provides support across the city with a number of accelerator schemes, competitive office spaces and access to global markets across a range of varying disciplines.
The firm has recently turned their attention to The University of Birmingham and their extensive entrepreneurial programme in the hopes that many more industry business owners will continue to delve into the growing environment.
The faculty’s programme is entitled B Enterprising which helps current students and alumni individuals through highly intensive courses and schemes such as summer camps, internships, events and international travel. The programme boasts experience in helping budding entrepreneurs to develop their skills, networks and ideas while encouraging individuals to take action on their ideas.
Gold Vibes is ecstatic to see local educational facilities to embrace the culture of the city, genuinely encouraging and enhancing the city’s latest accolade. The firm hopeful such trends will continue with a number of other businesses delving into such areas to help produce future business owners within the city.
Gold Vibes has generated its own in-house development programme for their contractors which focuses on enhancing the skills and qualities of their professionals to produce effective brand ambassadors. The course is designed to prepare aspiring entrepreneurs for the future as a business owner while also becoming experienced across a range of disciplines within the sales and marketing sector. The firm also offers frequent exposure to networking events and one-to-one mentorship with industry experts in the hopes of maintaining Birmingham’s accolade for a sixth year running.
